Klipsch Promedia 2.1 Pod Removal

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Has anyone here actually gotten one of these off of the bottom of the speaker?

I've found instructions to do so online, but I'm wondering if Klipsch has made a production change -- mine appears to be glued or bonded on, and I don't want to force it and break something.

No issues with it at all -- just wanted to change the LED to a blue one.

Sounds do-able, but I love my Promedia's and I would rather not mutilate them.

I took mine apart to clean the volume knob. It was making static noise when I turned the volume up or down because of dust in the switch. the pod is on rails so it just slides off but is very tight, but just be careful with it. Its doable.

The operation was a success -- there were strips of friction tape holding it in place; just took a couple of taps to break it loose. All the exterior lighting in the build is blue now. thumb.gif

I am wondering, though, if I took out those six stock electrolytics on the pod board (4 10uF@50V, 2 100uF@16V) and dropped in something like Elna Silmics, i could get some improvement. Might just give that a shot.
